San Bernardino County District Attorney Files Felony Charges Against School Maintenance Worker

4/4/2017

 On April 3rd, 2017, the Special Investigative Unit of RJN Investigations, Inc. was formally notified by the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office regarding the arrest of a school maintenance worker based upon a documented referral submitted.  In this case, the claimant filed a continuous trauma claim involving multiple body parts covering a timeframe of 2011 thru 2014.  As the claim progressed, red flag indicators were detected by the examiner.  As such, a surveillance level investigation was requested and video evidence was obtained of the claimant working out on several occasions at a gym.  While at the gym, he was videotaped bench pressing with dumbbells, lateral pull downs, bicep and tricep machines, without any discomfort or apparent restrictions.  The claimant’s deposition was subsequently taken in San Bernardino County and in the course of this testimony, the claimant made specific material misrepresentations regarding his physical abilities under the penalty of perjury.  In accordance with the regulations set forth by the California Department of Insurance, the case was then referred to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit as well as to the California Department of Insurance Fraud Division.  Upon completion of their criminal investigation, the claimant was formally charged with four felony counts of insurance fraud and attempted perjury.  The claimant’s preliminary hearing is currently scheduled for April 7th, 2017.
